Radical SAM (IPR007197)

Short name: rSAM

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


Radical SAM proteins catalyze diverse reactions, including unusual methylations, isomerization, sulphur insertion, ring formation, anaerobic oxidation and protein radical formation. Evidence exists that these proteins generate a radical species by reductive cleavage of S:-adenosylmethionine (SAM) through an unusual Fe-S centre [PMID: 11222759, PMID: 15317939].
